Quick revival about the C11 Boleslavski line of classical French.

I chose this thread because new "russian" encounter in the line, in the current russian championship, Moscow august 2012.

The line was dealt on chesspublishing update in 2006 (Short-Sukova,Gibraltar 2006): 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.f4 c5 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.Be3 a6 8.Qd2 b5 9.a3 (Kasparov and Anand has been advocates of that move) Qa5!? (Qb6 is maybe the "usual" move, but maybe the 10.Ne2! blockade strategy is best for White) 10.Be2 (10.Ra2 Timofeev-Wang,Aeroflot 2006 Qb6 11.Ne2 Bb7 12.dxc5 Bxc5 13.Ned4 Nxd4 14.Nxd4 g5; 10.Rb1 Qb6 can transpose to Kolev-Glek,Linares 1996 (Tiemann) or Paethz-Danielian, Dresde 2004 or Palac, M.-Kuljasevic, D. Sibenik 2008) b4! 11.Nd1 Rb8!?

12.c3 bxc3 13.Nxc3 (13.bxc3 cxd4) cxd4 14.Nxd4 Nxd4 15.Bxd4 Bc5 16.Bxc5 Qxc5 17.b4 Qa7 18.Rd1 Grischuk-Potkin,Moscow 2012

and now 18..h6 seems more interesting than 18...Bb7.

All the line seems straightforward for Black, reaching a good endgame for Black side (Black has pawn thrust like g5 or f6 in store; White has a rook vs a knight on the d4 blockading square).

Do you have some good lines for White after 11...Rb8 ?
